Further information on the Association and the DCA Meeting Minutes can be found by clicking here. Minutes of the DCA AGM Meeting in September are now available and cover many village matters eg traffic, footpaths, signs and car parks.
A temporary shop set up in St Thomas's car park during the closure period is now open again, after the resolution of licensing problems with Oldham BC. The opening hours are 6am to 6pm each day until the refurbished store is ready on Friday, November 28 th. It stocks a limited range but includes newspapers etc, milk and dairy products, and some grocery lines. The access is from Church Street and is adjacent to the Church entrance door.
Gartside Street Car Park (behind Delph Methodist Church)
As you are no doubt aware, Delph Methodist Church was forced to close the car park behind its buildings, on the advice of both its insurance company and its solicitor, because of its poor state of repair and the risk of personal injury. A note has been received from the Property Steward (Margaret Taylor) at the Church as follows :
"Just a short note to tell you that the car park is now line-marked and open.
The lease from OMBC has been appraised with our solicitors and should now be back with OMBC. The lease for Saddleworth Parish Council should be with us this week.
Tony Marlor (Clerk to SPC) is busy sorting out signage.
We shall be having an official opening, hopefully at 10:00 on Saturday 13th December.
We hope you will join us, so we can thank you - you all helped enormously to make this happen "
Delph Doctors' Surgery
The new Surgery on Gartside Street is now open, with a temporary phone/data connection to the BT network. It is following more or less the previous facilities, with Ann as receptionist. They hope to expand facilities in due course
